As Jeff Gordon races on tracks for the last time in his career, he inevitably becomes part of the story line. He will roll off the grid fifth for his final Cheez-it 355 at the Glen and was strong enough to contend for the pole.
Road racing takes a specialized set of skills, which Gordon has in abundance. He has won more races on this track type than anyone in the history of NASCAR and should be able to contend for another win. Calling one’s shot in this sport is difficult, but a solid top-five would make him a great value. Aug 8 - 9:01 PM

Jeff Gordon posted the fastest single lap in the final practice for the Cheez-it 355 at the Glen. His top speed was 127.333 mph, which was set early in the session.

Speed has not been the issue with Gordon in recent years, however. His last six attempts on this track have been marred by accidents, spins, and electrical problems—giving him only one top-10 in that span of time.

Jeff Gordon was running just outside the top 10 with one lap remaining in the Windows 10 400 at Pocono Raceway, but as drivers ran out of gas in front of him, he advanced to third at the checkers.

Gordon was one of the last drivers to pit during the last fuel stop. He was not overly strong most of the afternoon, but played the cards that were dealt him and that ultimately paid off for fantasy players.

Jeff Gordon has struggled throughout the weekend at Pocono Raceway. He posted only the 21st-fastest time (173.842 mph) in Saturday mornings session for the Windows 10 400 and was 15th (172.891) on the final practice speed chart with 15 minutes remaining.

On the heels of a disappointing Brickyard 400 performance at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Gordon drastically needs something to turn around for the team. It appears he will have to wait at least one more week, however, and should be left in the Pocono garage.

For the first time since April, Jeff Gordon earned three consecutive top-10s at Daytona International Speedway, Kentucky Speedway, and New Hampshire Motor Speedway. He finished ninth in the 5-Hour Energy 301.

As good as this is, Gordon is heading in the wrong direction at the moment. He finished sixth, seventh, and ninth in the past three races respectively and needs to turn his fortune around at Indianapolis Motor Speedway to be a good value.

While Clint Bowyer was attempting to leave the garage, he ran into the back of Jeff Gordon’s car. Significant damage was sustained by the No. 24 and it will probably cause him to miss the remainder of the morning session. Bowyer should be able to return to the track.

Gordon struggled in qualification and will start only 23rd on Sunday; Bowyer was slightly better and lines up 18th. Any practice that Gordon gets in will be meaningless as the car will have to undergo changes overnight. Gordon was 20th on the practice chart with Bowyer sitting 14th. Gordon is not recommended.

Jeff Gordon failed in his final bid to win a race at Kentucky Speedway—the only Cup track on which he has competed without a victory.

Gordon ran well and spent 70 percent of the race in the top 10, but he was part of the lead battle only briefly in the opening laps and never led. Time is dwindling for him to win during the regular season, but he currently 10th in the points’ standings and is not in much jeopardy of failing to make the Chase.

Kentucky Speedway is the only track visited by NASCAR on which Jeff Gordon has not yet won, which means a victory there must be on his bucket list for this week before he retires at the end of the 2015 season.

Gordon’s best finish at Kentucky was a fifth back in 2015. The good news is that he has never really struggled on this track with top-10s in all four starts. Winning is elusive, but Gordon’s focus on the Quaker State 400 by Advance Auto Parts should make him a solid value.

Jeff Gordon crashed on the final lap of both the Daytona 500 and Geico 500 earlier this season to finish in the 30s, so it came as little surprise to see him spinning as the checkers waved. Fortunately he had already crossed the finish line on the final lap and was credited with sixth in the Coke Zero 400 at Daytona International Speedway.

It was not the victory he wanted in his final attempt on this legendary track, but it moved him up one position in the points and that could be critical in 10 weeks when the Chase begins.

The iconic 'rainbow paint scheme' will appear on Jeff Gordon's No. 24 Axalta Chevrolet SS one last time under the lights at Bristol Motor Speedway on Saturday, August 22, 2015 in Bristol, Tennessee.

Gordon has five wins at the famed half-mile track referred to as, "The Last Great Coliseum." Four of Gordon's wins were in the colorful rainbow paint scheme designed by legendary, motorsports artist, Sam Bass. "Ever since it was announced this year was my final season, the fans have been vocal on social media wanting us to run it again. Thanks to Axalta for allowing that to happen." said Gordon.-Axalta Coating Systems

Jeff Gordon posted the fastest single lap in the final practice session for the Quicken Loans 400 at Michigan International Speedway with a speed of 198.604 mph.

Gordon is the most recent winner at this track. He won last fall’s Pure Michigan 400 from the pole and is one of the favorites to finish in the top five this week. Better still he has been less dominant than Kevin Harvick and Jimmie Johnson, so he is a much better salary cap value in most games.

Jeff Gordon spent only about 35 laps inside the top 10 at Dover from the 400 that made up the distance, but he made them count. He was running 11th and had just lost a lap to the leaders when a caution waved on lap 377. With only a few drivers left on the lead lap, he gained one more spot to finish 10th.

This pattern has been a little unsettling and difficult for fantasy owners to account. Gordon needs a strong race from start to finish in order to become a favorite again, but the good news is that the series rolls onto Pocono Raceway next week. That is one of his favorite tracks.

Jeff Gordon knows it will be difficult to match the feeling he gets racing after this season, but broadcasting could provide something close to it.

That was among the reasons Gordon decided to pursue broadcasting, leading to Thursday’s announcement that he’ll join Mike Joy and Darrell Waltrip in the booth for Fox’s broadcast of NASCAR Sprint Cup events. Gordon has signed a multi-year contract. He replaces Larry McReynolds, who had been in the booth since Fox began broadcasting Cup races in 2001. McReynolds will remain an analyst for the network.

Jeff Gordon has three all-star wins with the latest of these coming in 2001. He followed that with several more top-10s and a third in 2006, but he has suffered through several bad runs since and failed to crack the top 10 in his last eight starts.

In his last eight attempts, Gordon has averaged a result of only 15th, which is extremely disappointing considering the size of the all-star field.

Jeff Gordon utilized the same strategy as race-winner Jimmie Johnson and third-place Dale Earnhardt Jr.—who also happen to be his teammates. He finished fourth on old tires and earned his second top-five of the season.

Gordon’s other top-five this year came at Bristol three weeks ago. He had a dominant car at Talladega SuperSpeedway last week, but a penalty late in the race ruined his day. As long as he races in the top five, Gordon has a shot at winning and that makes him a good fantasy value.
